Its nice the seller admitted they are a 1:1 copy - as he can be sued for that :)

 

 

Lol yea well it was a Chinese site and the grammar was awful anyway so I'm not surprised. He didn't actually show the logo or use the term Monster Beats by Dre anywhere though so I have no idea

The fact that its a replica is enough for Monster to act upon it

If it were my business and had something so successful, instead of just putting websites and warning people about it, I would actively ask the community to find these dealers so that I could sue them

 

Once this is done for several, fake sellers would be less encouraged to sell them, in fear of being sued -> this would not only give my name some more publicity, it will also reduce people form being "disappointed" from buying my products, which in fact were fakes, and not the "real deal"

Although I am guilty for buying them, I do agree with your post. I see so many "authentic" Beats on eBay that it's not even funny.

haha yeah true, that said you could say you "never knew", but I think you wouldn't get away with that lol

 

And yes, wow the amount of fakes I see - makes me wonder how many people actually have fakes in the world, or when i see people walking with them in the streets.

and that's why I refuse to buy headphones off of eBay unless I know for sure that they are authentic. I would be tempted to buy Denon D2000s though if I can find a good price...but I have no idea if knockoffs have been made for these nowadays

Earphones and headphones that aren't used by everyone in the streets won't be made replicas of.

ie. the D2K's as popular as you might think they are - I find IMPOSSIBLE to find in France.

 

yet I find the beats in every other store.

 

Long story short: no there are no fakes for the D2K's - price wise, if you look around I'm sure you might be able to find something at around $200-250, might be used though, for example:

http://www.electronics-expo.com/denon-ahd2000-high-performance-over-ear-headphones-ob

 

 

you won't find cheaper.

I got really, really lucky in buying some BRAND new D2K's from an authorised dealer, which gives me 2yrs warranty here in the UK for £180, which is: $280

 

other than that, they were £250, on amazon, and HMV

Okay lets get back on topic. I used to own Beats Solo HDs before I learned about this site and got converted. When I ditched them for a pair of AKG K701 all the reactions I got were like "Omg what about your beats? They were so nice!" They stopped asking that once I let them listen to them though :D

haha good one :)

 

I don't think head-fi tries to convert people, that sounds like a religion (lol), instead we try to make you aware that there are other, possibly, and probably better options out there.

People who enjoyed the Beats didn't insult your AKG? I would expect something like "where is the base it haz no base".

Join our evil cult by sacrificing your wallet to the all powerful headphone companies NOW ! Remember, the Beats and Bose owners will try to lead you away from the path to audio bliss and bankruptcy, do not listen to their blasphemy ! very_evil_smiley.gif

I suspect more "K-ON Conversion" rather than "Head-fi Conversion" at your part :)

Owned lol

 

If the person with Beats isn't completely arrogant and is willing to try other headphones, I usually pull out my M50s and see how they like them. Most of the time, I get a surprised look as they turn on their music, and then a "ok, how much were these again?" (ok meme face) lol
